Personalities!

This picture cracks me up, and it is very telling of our boys' personalities!
Will (chill-will) is on the left, and this is what he typically looks like all the time. Levi is on the right, and he is being a little stinker by trying to bite his brother! I think I could have told you this picture would be taken whenever I was pregnant! I can distinctly remember apologizing to Will (in my womb) whenever Levi was acting crazy. Funny stuff!



I can't believe that they are almost one week old. God has truly blessed us with beautiful, healthy boys who are a joy to have. It has been a rough week for me, but one that I would NEVER exchange.
I will be eternally grateful for family and friends who have helped in so many ways and continue to help out. I have people who are taking the night shifts for me so that I can rest in between feedings. I have a mom who is maintaining my house, my medications, my emotional/physical health, my babies in such a way that makes me feel guilty for EVER talking back to her in Jr. High or ignoring her advice....live and learn.
I am nursing both our boys with success so far! It is a very special time between us that I love SO much. Yes, it is exhausting. Yes, I doubt how I am going to do this tomorrow and the next day, but I just do it one feeding at a time. I somehow end up just fine at the end of the day.

I wish I had more energy to update my blog daily, and hopefully that energy will come back very soon. For now, just pray for those moms of multiples who have no family to help or who are single moms. I seriously do NOT know how they do it.
